Macedonian national anthem

The Symbols Of the Republic of Macedonia

Denes nad Makedonija (Today over Macedonia) is the national anthem of Republic of Macedonia. The lyrics were written by Vlado Maleski and the music was composed by Todor Skalovski. The national anthem was adopted on August 11, 1992.

The anthem was performed for the first time on New Year’s Eve in 1942 in Struga in the house of Sotir Suta, where activists of the liberation movement of Macedonia from Struga and the Struga region attended.

In Vlado Maleski’s own words:

Given the situation, the aim was to gather the youth and under this form to discuss the upcoming armed resistance against fascism. Then I was informed about the attack on the police station in Prilep and the attacks in Kumanovo. As for the new year’s welcome program, myself, Boro Puthe and Dimche Kosharco, have prepared the song “Today Over Macedonia” which will soon become the most popular song in all of Macedonia and which until today is held as a kind of Macedonian anthem
